Oh how I've missed the sunshine!
While living in Hawaii IS literally sunshine and rainbows, we are smack dab in the middle of rainy season and there hasn't been much sun shining to speak of.
So in an effort to get out of the house to do something "fun" with the kiddos today, I got in my workout, showered, dressed, etc before they got up.
Jack woke up but he was calmly eating breakfast so I decided to check flight tickets for a trip home we've been planning.
Two HOURS later, I finally made the purchase. Kids didnt have the right cereal, didnt want the oatmeal I made (that they asked for), dog was barking to come in but too muddy for me to just let him back in while trying to finish my ONE task and manage the chaos.
Of course, I lost my temper with both kids and the dog, ended up frustrated at them and then myself.
A few things I've learned from my healthy and fitness journey (aside from sticking to my workouts) is that I will ALWAYS be a work in progress. I'm not perfect. I yell at my kids sometimes out of frustration. I get annoyed when things really aren't a big deal. BUT this process... I'm not just physically seeing results.... I'm working on making myself a better mommy to the crazy kiddos (and the dog!) And a better wife. I have to PRAY for PATIENCE more than 5 times a day, take deep breaths and learn to pick my battles. But again, the changes I've seen mentally and emotionally as a wife and mom are HUGE.
And this year I actually put goals on paper for my coaching gig. Little by little I'm able to contribute financially to our family. Even having a little of my own money towards our flights back home is such a huge deal for me.
2019 is going to be an AMAZING year for me and my family!
You ready to make this YOUR best year yet!? #sunshineandrainbows #livingtheHIlife #hawaii #islandlife #workinprogress #imnotperfect #progressnotperfection
